Olympic downhill champion Lindsey Vonn crashed in a training run Tuesday in Colorado, perhaps jeopardizing the most anticipated comeback effort heading into the Sochi Olympics in February. "We have no reason to believe it's anything significant right now," U.S. Ski team spokesman Tom Kelly told the Associated Press. Vonn reportedly was not hospitalized and was being evaluated at her Vail, Colo., home by Bill Sterett, her orthopedic surgeon. Another spokesman said clarity on Vonn's condition should be known within 24 hours.

The biggest attraction of the charming neo-Alpine resort town of Vail, so neatly set against the mighty Colorado Rockies, is an abundance of superb ski trails that lace the surrounding snow-clad peaks. But even Vail's most avid skiers need to take a break, and shopping is one of Vail's favorite apres -ski activities. Fortunately, there's a great deal more to buy here than ski-lift tickets and expensive condominiums.

For skiers and snowboarders, Colorado can be a land of extremes -- and not just in terrain. When it comes to the cost of a day on the slopes, Durango is the best place for bargain-hunters and Vail certainly will appeal to high rollers. That's the word from a TripAdvisor's Ski Index 2012-13 of 25 destinations in the U.S. and Canada. The online travel company created it by tallying the daily cost of a lift ticket, hotel, gear rental, a burger-and-fries meal and even a mug of beer.
